Book Review-Biblical Minimalism By Cheryl E. Smith and Giveaway

Biblical Minimalism: Following Jesus from a Life of Abundance to a More Abundant Life
 Today I'm pleased to post my review of Biblical Minimalism. I was so happy to be a part of Cheryl's review team and receive a copy of her book.

In her book Cheryl shares about testimony of how the Lord led her and her family to sell their home, letting go of unneeded physical things and move into a rental property. 
She talks about the difficulty of letting go of things and the Lord asking her " Do you love this more than Me?"
Her experience with moving and trying to hang on to not just physical items but also relationships that were damaging emotionally and spiritually. 
This book really made me think about our experience moving and trying to figure out what to keep and what to let go. That's the topic for a separate post.
There is so much meat in this book with lots of scriptures that I think would be good for memorizing and I highly recommend Biblical Minimalism. I'm planning on reading it again.
Now for the giveaway. It's simple if you would like to win a copy of this awesome book, just leave a comment below. The winner will be announced next Tuesday. Due to shipping costs giveaway is only open to U.S. residents.

  1. Dear friend! Thank you for your kind words and for doing this book review for us! We appreciate you and your support and encouragement so very much! Much love and gratitude being sent your way. :)

  2. Though I have no immediate moving plans, I suspect we all hold on to things best left behind. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  3. Hi Regina, I'm not wanting in the drawing for the book as I was also sent one to review. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it and how much it has helped me in this move we're going through right now. I couldn't have received it at a more appropriate time.
    I hope you're having a wonderful week.

  4. That sounds interesting. I'm constantly trying to minimize and have been challenged different times to think about how Jesus taught us to live. Definitely not the "American dream".

  5. I've heard about this book and it sounds lovely. Thanks for telling us more about it.

  6. for my family's finances, it is more minimalist to own our home...because rent costs WAY more than our mortgage ever did. Now 30+ years later, we save well over 2K per month not renting, but owning. That money can be used for many useful things. Not dissing the book, as I have not read it, and I AM pro-minimalist concepts...just wanting to caution any who think that your home is only a posession, and not a good financial decision.

  7. An interesting perspective, as I am considering selling. The reasons are not the same as the authors, but I am facing the same decisions of what to keep and what to let go....

    Stay safe

  8. I'm not a hoarded, but my hubby is. That's because what I keep is "important" and what he keeps is not. Just kidding!
